Bodegas Argüeso is a historic Sherry producer reborn and revived. Located in coastal Sanlúcar de Barremeda, it was founded by León de Argüeso y Argüeso in 1822. Originally from Burgos in the North of Spain, he settled in Sanlúcar where he opened a small grocery store called Almacén del Reloj. Shortly after, he acquired an old solera from the bodega San José in Santo Domingo, with an estimated age of over 250 years.
In 2016, Argüeso was acquired by Bodegas Yuste, who have invested heavily, including employing their own team of in-house coopers to repair and upgrade all the barrels within the company as it returns to its former glory. Winemaking is now led by young talent, Carmen de la Pascua. We are proud to represent this re-energised bodega, including helping them to develop their new, premium, 1822 range, that presents older, more complex wines in more contemporary packaging.
